Different types of organisation

There are two categories of language travel organisation:

  • Large structures which have their own language schools abroad and have offices in your country. These organisations sell their product but do not propose any other schools other than their own. In addition, if a school does not suit them, they will not be able to stop proposing it as it is a part of their group.

  • Small structures which have direct contact with host organisations and schools on-site. Generally, the advisers go on-site themselves in order to visit the place, the school and to meet the teaching body. The big advantage of these small organisations is that if they are not happy with the services of a language school abroad, they have the possibility to change as they are not bound by a conditional contract.
